Rihanna to Launch American ‘Styled To Rock’

RihannaRihanna is bringing her Styled To Rock TV show to the US. The production - which sees designers battle it out to create a stage outfit for the singing star - was axed after one series on Sky Living in the UK, but the "Diamonds" singer will now partner with the Style Network to resurrect it in the US.

"Fashion has always played an integral part in my life and career. I am so excited to partner with Style Network and share my creative insight with these 12 designers and give them this opportunity to showcase their work," she said in a statement.

The UK show was hosted by Henry Holland and Nicola Roberts, but the celebrity line-up has yet to be announced for the new show. Rihanna herself only appeared in three episodes before it was dropped after failing to draw in enough viewers and production crew also blamed the hectic schedule of the pop stars who took part for causing problems.

The chat show queen - who recently interviewed the "Diamonds" singer on her show Oprah's Next Chapter about her relationship with the R&B singer who assaulted her in 2009 - praised the pop princess for being able to forgive him.

"You know what I loved about that interview is that she came with a big, wide open heart. She was in the space of forgiveness. And that she learned a lesson, that she was repeating with Chris Brown exactly what she needed to learn from her father," she told Extra.

During their interview in August, Rihanna spoke about her memories of her father Ronald Fenty being physically abusive to her mother and how she learned to forgive him. Oprah said she does not think less of the popstar for reuniting with Chris: "I think that if she is prepared to deal with that and is prepared to help him help himself then so be it. I have no judgment whatsoever. If that's how you choose to lead your life, that's really okay."

Mover than 53 million votes were recorded after American Idol’s Tuesday performance round, but one of the Top 8 failed to score a big enough share to survive the night.

They sound wonderful together, and the number was perfect. They’ll be performing a lot of duets together over the summer, when they both go out on the Idol tour.

The week’s Ford music video followed, a rather fun combination of cars and zombies. Watch all this year’s music video at Albumista.

When Andrew Garcia came out with “Got To Get You Into My Life” the number truly became fun. The wardrobe was really, really good too. Other songs featured in the medley included “Fool on the Hill,” “All You Need is Love” and “She Loves You.” It was definitely the best group performance of the season.
